Everything is Dark

Everything is Dark


I stare out through my window

I feel numb and I can’t move

Am I scared?


Boom! A flash of light

a gun is firing, I don’t flinch

Why can’t I look away?


His eyes look sad

My hands are cold

Do I know him?


He approaches me

My knees give, thud

Am I bleeding?


Pain, I feel it

I look down, blood

Am I dying?


I look up at him, he’s crying

I don’t hurt anymore
